Swansea City will be looking to pick up their third away win of the season when they face Wigan at the DW Stadium this evening (7.45pm).

We check out the key numbers heading into the big game.

1 - Four of Wigan’s five wins this season have been by a one-goal margin, with the exception being a 3-0 win over Stoke in August.

7 - Wigan midfielder Nick Powell has had a hand in seven goals so far this season, scoring four and assisting three. He was the Latics’ second-top scorer last year with 15 goals.

2 - Wigan are yet to lose back-to-back games in the Championship this season. They went down 1-0 at Norwich last weekend.



8 - It is eight years since Swansea lost to Wigan, when they suffered a 2-0 away defeat in the League Cup. That game saw the Swans face former boss Roberto Martinez for the first time.

3 – The Swans are looking to secure three consecutive league clean sheets for the first time since December 2015.

5 - Erwin Mulder has kept five clean sheets in just nine appearances this season.
